Can I Sue the Ski Resort for a Collision Injury? | Salt Lake City Utah Personal Injury Lawyers
If you are injured as a result of a collision with another skier or snowboarder, and you were the downhill skier with the right of way, then you have a claim against a skier or snowboarder that hit you. Ski resorts are not responsible for collisions that happen on their slopes in most circumstances.
In a collision case, the case is going to be filed against the other skier or snowboarder that caused the collision. When the injury is caused as a result of a condition or a hazard that was created through the negligence of the ski resort, then you can file a claim against the ski resort and recover from the resort from your injuries, provided you are able to prove that the condition as a result of the negligence of the ski resort.
